I wondered why it was called garlic vine when it didn't look like garlic at all. There must be a reason behind it's name. When I accidentally bruised a flower and smelt my fingers, I, then, knew why. You would not expect that these sweet looking flowers would smell as strong as a real garlic.
Did I regret having them in my garden? Not at all! I just need to avoid bruising a flower or my garden would smell like a kitchen.
How I love the mixture of the beautiful and the squalid in gardening.
It makes it so lifelike.
